Golden Geek Awards and New Shipping Zones

Posted by Cole Wehrle (Collaborator)

Hi everyone, 

As you may have heard, Root has been nominated for several Golden Geek Awards this year, including awards for Artwork and Presentation, Expansion (for the Riverfolk Expansion), Innovative, Strategy Game, Thematic Game, and Board Game of the Year.

It hardly requires saying that we are incredibly honored by these nominations. I first created my BoardGameGeek account back in 2003, and the website has been an important community for me both as a player and as a designer. I certainly would have never been able to get my first games published without it. Though the site has its share of problems, I think it remains a tremendous resource for everyone in the hobby. 

For those not familiar with the award, only BGG users who have supported the site or have an avatar or a geekbadge are eligible to vote. Voting is done using the Schulze method, which is a type of voting where you get to rank your preferences from a list of nominees. It’s pretty fun and a nice way to take stock of the previous year of gaming. Regardless of who you vote for, I’d encourage the active BGG users among us to vote.

Shipping Update

We received a lot of feedback on adding additional shipping zones to our campaign and we're pleased to say that we've expanded shipping to several new countries: Peru, Russia, India, Israel, South Africa, Argentina, Vietnam, Costa Rica, Serbia, Turkey, United Arab Emirates, and Brunei. Prices can be found on the shipping graphic on the main project page. 

We understand there's a great demand for shipping to Brazil and although we haven't added Brazil yet, we're still figuring out our options and are trying what we can to get the best and most reliable rates to Brazil. Please stay tuned and hopefully we'll have good news soon.

Have a Specific Question?

There are many questions popping up in the comments and Kickstarter messages and it is very difficult for us to track. If you have any questions or concerns please contact us at support@ledergames.com.

      This is extremely well deserved. At least for my, any criticism and suggestions of the game and KS are to get it as far and as high as it possibly can go. I'm a huge fan of the set-up!! If you could somehow do the next expansion as a Legacy campaign that then let's us keep all the new unlocked factions afterwards to play in the main game I'd have an effing heart attack due to unmeasurable joy!!

      Jussi - But then again, how do we know the war depicted in Root didn't happen?

      Dawras - Thanks I'll take that to my operations team.

      El Bastardo - I haven't played much either lately. :( That Betrayal Legacy has been parked on my desk for a few weeks.

      Jussi - No comment. :) I'm not too worried about it I guess.

      I noticed that Root wasn't on the Wargame vote. Did some stick in the mud decide that Root isn't a wargame because it's not a 1-to-1 replica of a historical battle somewhere in Europe? :)

      Just being honest here: Root is the only game on many of those nomination lists I am actually buying so even objectively this is an easy vote for the game ^_^

      @Creator

      Schilmil Games has partnered with Ludofy for Auztralia. Garphill Games has partnered with MeepleBR for Architects and Paladins of the West Kingdom. Mythic Games has partnered with Galápagos for Time of Legends: Joan of Arc.

      I hope you find a solution for Brazil soon. Even if we have to pay a little more (this happens often here in KS...) it'll not be a problem. Please do not forget us!

      Daniel - We are trying to find a partner for shipping. Messaging places inside of Brazil you seen in the past cold help.

      Cassandra - Thank you! :)

      Thanks for trying to include Brazil. Sometimes I really hate living here.
